positive behaviour intervention

Challenging behaviours such as physical aggression, running away, inappropriate touching and drug misuse can seem to “come out of the blue.” In fact, there are always reasons why someone engages in these behaviours. Until we understand why these behaviours occur we can all feel frustrated, afraid and powerless.

Functional assessments help caregivers and others understand why behaviours occur, and how Positive Behaviour Interventions can help to decrease them.

Positive Behaviour Interventions consider the unique challenges, strengths and resources of an individual and how he or she copes with the stressors of life. Strategies such as visual supports, scheduling and relaxation techniques assist in learning new ways to get  needs and wants met, while improving social relationships.
